Anthony Joshua has defended the IBF world title against Wladimir Klitschko while unifying the heavyweight division by collecting the vacant WBA [Super] and IBO world titles.

Joshua and Klitschko headlined Wembley Stadium this evening in front of a British record attendance as the Watford fighter comes through his toughest challenge.

90,000 fans filled the national football stadium, breaking the record previously held by Carl Froch and George Groves from their 2014 fight.

After claiming the IBF belt last year against Charles Martin, Joshua reeled off back-to-back successful defences against Dominic Breazeale and Eric Molina.

And Joshua completed a hat-trick of defences against the Ukrainian in one of the greatest heavyweight bouts in recent memory.
The initial early rounds were cagey and tight, but AJ came out flying in the fifth, giving absolutely everything and exploding into Klitschko with a series of brutal strikes that cut him under his eye and left him on the deck.

Chelsea legend Michael Essien has returned to the club and featured for the reserves in their 2-1 friendly win over Brentford on Wednesday.
 
Essien was spotted at Stamford Bridge on Monday, but the immediate assumption was that he was here just to visit and take in the festivities of the first match of the season against West Ham United. The now 33-year-old Essien isn't retired yet, though he's currently unattached after agreeing to terminate his contract early at Panathinaikos.

Aston Villa striker Jordan Ayew is to remain with the Championship club after manager Roberto Di Matteo revealed that there is no release clause in the player's contract.

Villa look likely to lose Idrissa Gana to Premier League side Everton.

But there is no risk of Villa losing 24-year-old Ayew, who moved from France in July 2015 when he signed on a five-year deal from Ligue 1 side Lorient.

"We're not looking to sell. It is not a question," Di Matteo told BBC WM.
